Instructional Ideas

  • Create a set of cubes and have learners complete this exercise in small groups; meet up for a class discussion after groups are finished
Classroom Considerations

  • Since the activity depends on tossing a cube around, there is some chance involved; you might end up asking the same question many times in a row
  • This is designed to help prepare pupils for an essay assignment, but the prompt is not included
Pros

  • Comes with a student worksheet
  • This is an interesting idea that will engage pupils and that can be used for any number of different topics
Cons

  • The sample answers have incorrect numbering, but are otherwise fine
